"We feel very good about Randy playing nose. We feel that probably one
of the best noses available was on our own team. "Randy has the body
type to be a nose, he's very powerful, he's got quick hands -- the
critical factors needed for a defensive linemen to play nose.'' so
says Jeff Ireland.
But I'm not sold on Starks at that position. He provides quality
depth, but two years ago, he replaced Ferguson for a few games (while
Ferguson was injured) and he played maybe about average in there. Who
knows? Making him a starter may motivate him...
